    Cardiomyopathy

    Pimobendan This is a new drug, Rocky was on it from Dec. 23, 2006 until Feb 8,2007. He was treated at Ohio State University Vetrinary Hospital and the drug was dispensed there. At that time it was not yet FDA approved, so I'm not sure about now. The reason Rocky was on it was to help his...

    Cardiomyopathy

    Sorry for the late response I did not read your message until 11/26/07. It will be one year next month on 12/23/06 that our Rocky was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy. He was on Lasix, Enilapril and Pimopemden. He also was in congestive heart failure and was coughing due to that. On...

    Epilepsy

    Canine Epilepsy I have not posted since 8/14/2007, and noticed today that someone responded to my e-mail regarding their boxer starting to have seizures. I have been so busy trying to research this condition, I haven't been on BW. Connor has continued to have cluster seizures about every 3...

    Epilepsy

    Hello, I have not posted in a while. I have Conner, our rescue boxer since March 2007 who had his first seizure on 3/28/07 and many since. He's been on Phenobarbital since his diagnosis in late April 2007. He's now on Potassium Bromide for 3 weeks now. Early this past Sunday (about 3:20am)...

    Health or Behavior

    I called his vet this morning, she mentioned bumping up the dosage and also Potassium Bromide possibly in addition to or instead of the Phenobarb. His blood level was just at the low end of the normal range at the last check on May 25th. The park sounds like a great idea! Thank you for your...

    Health or Behavior

    Hello, I am in need of some sound advice. I am so at my wits end. As I have previously mentioned, we got our 3rd boxer (only current dog) back in March from rescue. He has idiopathic epilepsy & is on Phenobarbital. He is 1 year old and went to his first basic obedience class last Wednesday...

    Gagging and coughing..

    I agree with taking your dog to the vet, our Rocky had a cough this past December and we took him to the vet on 12/19/06. The vet treated the cough symptoms with antibiotics and a cough supressant pill, advising us if the cough persisted to bring him back in a few days. We took him back on...

    Puppy play, or dominating behavior?

    I'm having the same situation with our dog Conner. We have had him since March this year, and it seems he is getting worse. Yesterday morning I was getting clothes out of the dryer & he decided to help me. When I tried to get the clothes from him he started barking and jumping up on me and...

    Advice on Aggression at the dog park

    In my previous reply, I did not mean to sound like Mugsy should not go to the park. It's just that I came to realize that it was not worth the worry about Rocky so I made the decision not to go back. I think dogs must sense things about one another (likes & dislikes). They seem to have a more...

    Advice on Aggression at the dog park

    Thanks for your reply regarding Conner's separation anxiety. I have had previous experience with a dog park with our Rocky, who we lost on 2/8/2007 due to dilated cardiomyopathy. We got Rocky from Boxer Rescue on 3/1/2003, that summer he was a guest at a dog park which you had to be a member...

    Separation Anxiety or Just a Whiney Pup

    Thanks for your response, it has been almost 15 years since we've had a boxer this young. We've had him since March & now just this week he has been getting his little jaws on things he shouldn't and chewing them up. It seems like there is a new challenge for us each week or so. Hopefully, in...

    Separation Anxiety or Just a Whiney Pup

    I was wondering if Conner could have separation anxiety, or if it's because he is still puppy. He will be a year old on May 28th. We have had him since March 21st. Whenever my husband or I leave the house & one of us is still inside Conner will whine and go to our front window and paw on the...

    Greetings Boxer Lovers

    This is my first post as a new member to Boxerworld. We have owned 3 boxers, Roderick from 1992 - 2003, we had to put him down due to cancer. Then we had Rocky from 2003 - February 8, 2007. He was our first rescue boxer, and was the most noble dog I've ever met. He was diagnosed with dilated...
